This book convincingly argues that Quality of Life is the vital link between health promotion and rehabilitation. The contributors first review the conceptual basis for understanding and discussing quality of life in health promotion and education. They continue by addressing critical issues such as ethics, policy, quality assurance, and measurement - exploring applications of quality of life in the context of a wide range of current social issues and populations. Finally, they consider the implications for future research and practice.
